the shackles are off in the sense that he doesn't have to worry about being re-elected. he's got four years left and it's an opportunity for him to really go for it. >> well, i think we're going to see a president with a new level and a new kind of resolve as we did through the campaign. i think we're going to see some of the things we heard about already in terms of immigration reform and new moves around gun safety. i think we'll see some progress on the peacekeeping around the world, and we will see an emphasis on economic growth, which is absolutely key. >> now, he's obviously facing big, tough challenges certainly economically, and also with the republicans who still hold the house. it's a fine line, isn't it? he's already shown a sign since he got re-elected he's not going to take any nonsense from the republicans and he's being pretty tough on them. but that's not necessarily going to help him get stuff done. it may, if anything, make them more intransgent. how does he play that tricky line? >> well, you know, probably he's the better one to answer that question, but i think it's mor
. >> on that front, when you say that, recent tradition, at least, right, the person who lost the election is supposed to be there. that would be mitt romney. >> yeah. >> no? >> he's not going to be there. i just checked before coming on to double check with a source close to romney who says that he, as far as they know, he didn't get an invitation. that he wasn't invited. you know, we're not -- we haven't had time to check that with the white house, but i think what we have been used to seeing are the rivals of presidents coming because they have positions of power that cause them to be here. for example, john mccain is a senator. john kerry who lost to george bush is a senator. al gore who lost, remember that just a little bit in 2000, he was the vice president, so he had to be there. and one other interesting note is that speaking of bush, george w. bush and george h.w. bush, father and son, neither will be here. george 41, the older, was in the hospital. he was just released. the younger said that he is not coming because he wants to be with his father. we know, covering george bush, h
the president for a moa. he's only the 16th president ever elected to two consecutive terms. we've heard a lot about second term curses that have brought down richard nixon, hampered ronald reagan, bill clinton. people forget reagan was able to get tax reform, bill clinton was able to get a balanced budget. certainly a big opportunity for the president but fully aware in the white house, a lot of challenges ahead as well, jenna. >> certainly not challenges for a father. nice to see the first family, ed, and how much the girls have grown up over the last four years. what we're looking at for the president tomorrow besides the hair styles and what everybody is wearing at the inauguration is what is he going to say? what will be the address to the nation tomorrow? you mentioned some policy challenges ahead. what are you hearing about tomorrow's address and how that might set the table, if you will, for the years to come? >> true. what i'm hearing is the state of the union address next month is really where the president will go with a deeper dive on policy, whether it be gun control, immigration
, and balanced peace plan that was proposed by me as the prime minister of israel. >> during the u.s. election, i was in israel last summer. mitt romney, governor mitt romney, the republican candidate, came by. it seemed to me that bebe netanyahu was essentially endorsing mr. romney's candidacy. they did a big fundraiser in israel. you were very critical of that. do you think that prime minister netanyahu was unfairly or inappropriately intervening in the u.s. election? is that why you were so critical? >> i think it was a terrible mistake. i don'i don't think that it is r duty or it is our interest to intervene in the political process in the united states. the appearance of support by netanyahu to romney, i must say i know romney very well. he's really a genuine good friend of israel and i respect him very much, but it was not for us to interfere in this process. >> you called governor romney, mr. prime minister, a good friend of israel. is barack obama a good friend of israel? >> no doubt in my mind. i was very close to president bush when he was president. we are still friends. what happens h
